Which card fits what? It's confusing. I still think that "PCMCIA" stands for People Can't Memorize Computer Industry Acronyms!

This listing is by no means complete, and is not guaranteed. If you notice any errors, please contact us.

Compact Flash cards are thicker than SmartMedia because they have a metal shell. Smartmedia cards are thinner (which is why they can fit in floppy disk adapters such as the FlashPath) and usually a little cheaper. Currently Compact Flash cards are available in larger sizes (higher capacity) than SmartMedia.

There are two types of SmartMedia cards: 5 volt and 3.3 volt. Interchangeability is less than 100%, although some cameras will use either type. With the latest software, FlashPath floppy disk adapters can be used with either voltage.

Many cameras that accept Type II cards will also accept Type I or Type III cards; with adapter they can also use Compact Flash or SmartMedia cards.
